An amazing night at the Kent Wedding Awards 2016
For those of you that don’t know, and im sure that isn’t many of you, last month I was crowned winner at the Kent Wedding Awards 2016. I am very proud to say that I took home the trophy for the Bridal Hair Design catergory ( que excited squeals!! ) . Winning an award like this is a big deal for me , it means that not only am I being recognized for what I do, but also recognized for doing it well!
It’s no secret that I love my job, I love what I do, I love that it fits around my life and my family and I love that a day at work – doesn’t even seem like a day at work! Four years ago when I was sat in my dead end job, clock watching, wishing my days away – the life I have now seemed like a million miles away. I didn’t even know it could exist. I had trained as a hairdresser years after leaving school. It wasn’t until I returned from three seasons in the sunshine that I finally enrolled myself in college and decided to go for it. I had always wanted to be a hairdresser, I loved playing with hair and I loved art so two years and two NVQ’s later – when someone first asked me if I offered bridal hair services I answered yes immediately. It was one of those moments where I thought ‘yeah , that sounds like a good idea, I could do that couldn’t i?! ’ and the rest as they say … is history!
Hundreds of brides later, a variety of awards , a fast growing business and now I’m here! They say that ‘’if you do what you love, you’ll never work a day in your life’’ and it’s true. My ‘job’ is to turn up to a beautiful bride on the best day of her life, create something amazing for her, share some of her happiest moments, chat with her, laugh with her and then watch her walk into the next chapter of her life, looking like the very best version of herself , knowing that I helped to make that happen, and to make her vision become a reality. That’s pretty special! And then they go and give me an award for it too – that’s the icing on the cake! I’d say that on the job satisfaction scale that’s gotta take some beating right?!
